My first trip to the 1st island of the CBBT took one hour and five minutes. It was a perfect day for it. The wind was non-existent and it was nice paddle out. I left about 8:00am and got there at 9:05. When I got there, I decided to go all the way around the island just to see if there were any other yakers around. None. First fiddler in and not a minute later, I felt that faint little bump. It had been a very long time since I went Tautog (calle blackfish up north) fishing. The bite is so fast and easy to miss. But instinctively, the split second I felt the next bump, it was on. I almost feels like you're snagged on a rock, until it decides it wants to get back to it's hole. They are awesome fighters. It was a decent 16incher. The action came and went for the next 5 and a half hours. I ended up with 15 togs and brought home the 4 biggest. Two tubby-ass females, were thrown back. It took me about the same amount of time to get back.
It was a perfect day for a client to cancel a meeting, the wind was barely blowing.
